About 160 Queenstown Lakes and Central Otago residents
created a blur of red and white from the starting line of the
inaugural Great KidsCan Santa Run at Jack's Point, near
Fundraising fun-runners of all ages donned the quintessential
red suit, beard and hat of Father Christmas and jingled all
the way around a choice of 3km or 5km courses, organised by
Active QT, despite the the 24degC heat.
Santa Runs were held in 16 locations across the country,
including Dunedin. Organisers aim to add more locations and
increase participant numbers next year.
